Annie, a pregnant working mother in the mid-1970s, comes into contact with an organisation that performs illegal abortions in the public eye.

When she accidentally becomes pregnant, Annie, a working mother of two in the mid-1970s, comes into contact with an organisation that performs illegal abortions in the public eye. Welcomed by the movement founded on tangible help for women and shared knowledge, Annie, played by Laure Calamy (Call My Agent! and César for best actress in 2021 for My Donkey, My Lover & I), finds new meaning to her life in the fight for the adoption of a law on abortion. Lenoir attended the French Film Festival in 2017 for Aurore (I Got Life!) with Agnès Jaoui.
